A preview of Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 2 "Resurrection"
The Richmond Symphony and Chorus will be performing the monumental Symphony No. 2 ("Resurrection") by Gustav Mahler this weekend in the Carpenter Theatre. This symphony is often considered to be one of the greatest ever composed and took Mahler nearly seven years to write!
I caught up with Music Director Valentina Peleggi and Chorus Director Anthony Blake Clark to discuss the music and preview this weekend's concerts. Performances are Saturday evening at 8pm and Sunday afternoon at 3pm. We'll have pre-concert talks one hour before each performance.
